D3 Tool Steel
D3 tool steel stockholders and suppliers, delivering to the whole of the UK. West Yorkshire Steel supply D3 flats cut from block and a limited range in diameters. A high carbon high chromium steel noted for its resistance to abrasion, it offers excellent dimensional stability in hardening. After heat treatment D3 is hard, durable and dense, and is immune from sinking in use. It offers a measure of corrosion resistance when polished. In general, the applications of D3 tool steel resemble those of D2 but it should be remembered that D3 has better wear resistance of the two steels and is preferred for such items as shear blades. Owing to its higher wear resistance, D3 tool steel is slightly more difficult to grind than D2.
